states citizens should not be denied by the united states. the issue are they putting roadblocks to get more voter suppression to, to make the process more difficult? if there was supposed to be a period of public comment, why didn't the secretary of state do that? >> heather: is that the issue to have the right to vote? >> here the voter suppression that i'm concerned with. i'm concerned about the suppression of my vote and your vote, of every single voted that is legitimate vote is being tampered down by illegal votes. there are thousands being cast all the the time and it doesn't take that many illegal votes to sway an election. >> i love you dearly but the fact there are thousands and thousands of illegal votes is absolutely non-proven. >> heather: that is not. have you not seen our series right here on fox done by our own eric shawn weekly talking about the issue. >> i don't mean to intererupted but in michigan there is a study that has proven there was 1400 dead people that voted and hundred illegal felons that voted in the last few elections in michigan alone. voters in florida t
working worldwide are working in the united states. we're producing more, we're using less. that's a path to energy independence, and i like that. jenna: so it's interesting that you're a democrat and you're governor of montana because i went back and lookedded at some of the voting records in your state, and if you look at the way your state has voted in the presidential lengths, it's voted mainly republican going back to the clintons, right now it looks like your state leaning towards mitt romney. why are you supporting the president? what is it about the president that continues to get your support when the people that you represent may not be as convinced? >> oh, gosh, i think it's been since lbj since a democrat got to 50% in montana, so that's not unusual. but this president was, inherited one of the worst economies in the history of this country. 29 consecutive months of increasing private sector jobs. by the way, all over this country we've been decreasing public sector jobs. in montana public sector jobs are down by 4.2%, and we're at 6.5% unemployment. so we've created 4.5 milli

, perhaps even the first latino president of the united states. he knows full well why he was picked to give this speech. in his words he said, i'm young, and i'm hispanic. >> hey, everybody. i'm julian castro. >> reporter: first thing you need to know, it's pronounced julian castro. the j is silent. not julian. but even if you get the spanish wrong, don't worry. san antonio's mayor has never mastered spanish either. >> i understand it better than i speak it. i grew up in my household with my mother and grandmother mostly speaking english. i understand it, but speaking it back is always the challenge. >> reporter: julian castro's grandmother immigrated from mexico and worked in the chicano movement in san antonio. from the humble beginnings, julian and his twin brother went on to stanford university and harvard law school. now he is a rising star in the democratic party, tapped to give the keynote speech at the democratic convention, the same speech an unknown barack obama gave at the convention in 2004. >> you get talked about as someone who could be the first hispanic governor of texas. so
if you want to be leader of the united states. >> there are chinks in his armor, by thway. he didn't count on the knight from arkansas showing up either, bill cnton. >> sir lancelot. >> sir lancelot shed up in the fiel and he's not the guy to jouinth thank you, to complete the last reference to that metaphor. >>> coming up, more right wing vitriol. newt gingrich said president obama isn't a real president, he said that last night, he says he's a false president. when will this rig wing effort stop to stop the legitimacy of issi? l a t reltless campaign. >>> also, the lead president obama enjoys in the polls may be helping democrats on otherob niwetao se senate. candidate whose fortunes are on the rise, wisconsin's tammy baldwin. mitt romney isn't succeeding as a solo act so the romney campaign is putting mitt romney and paul ryan on the campaign trail together,t karaoke duet, i guess. what does it tell you the big draw on the republican ticket is the number two guy? let me finish tonight with how the democratic party has a huge opportunity to grow after this election. this is "har

for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
of the united states of america, and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [ applause ] >> boy, she just looked great, didn't she? >> she did. you can imagine, the amount of therapy and hard work. >> oh. >> that she's had to endure to climb back from being -- she was literally shot in the head. >> in the head at close range. >> close blank range. that was a pretty pivotal time in the nation's conversation about where we stand and the tone of things. >> it was. >> what a symbol of hope she is. that was incredible. >> it was a very moving moment. >>> all right. coming up he nominated his dad, last night for another term as vice president, bo biden, the attorney general of delaware, joins us ahead here on "morning joe." former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, nbc news political director chuck todd and later maryland governor martin o'malley. up next mike allen is here with the politico playbook. but first, bill karins with a check on the weekend forecast. >> good morning to you, mika. let me help get everyone out the door thi
? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
, these videos, just fills me with pride. and because i know how much he loved being a united states senator and how much he loved the democratic party. >> congressman, quickly, handicap joe's chances today? what's going on? >> we need people to turn out and vote. nothing is taken for granted. joe is working hard, great grassroots campaign and so we're just going to keep pushing as someone who is on the ballot myself for many years, you never take anything for granted. joe's got a terrific organization on the ground, which is where it matters the most. >> i want to talk about that '49 senate race. -- '94 senate race. you would hear these stories your dad was sometimes as worried about your race as he was about mitt romney. talk about some of the stories. here he was in the fierce closest race of his political career and he's worried about your race. >> the paradigm of the mitt romney/t kennedy race of '94 is replaying itself in this campaign. mitt romney was on every side of every issue? '94 and once again he is playing the flip flop game again. so all you really need to do is replay those d
to help us stop iran. if we don't trust america to help us and the president of the united states to keep his word, we have to take action on our own. the kind of relationship netanyahu and romney have, they can get on the phone and talk to each other and talk it through. the worst of all situation would be a war against iran and israel attacks iran's nuclear weapons site and iran retaliates and the united states is drawn in, nobody wins that war. the important relationship is one that's there and been there for 40 years. >> kelly: all right. kt mcfarland, always appreciate your perception and get a picture and put it up next to yours. >> you've got it. >> jamie: kt is all navy, trust me. >> kelly: i was army. >> jamie: disappointing jobs picture, raising more fears over our fragile u.s. economy. how wall street took that news and why some are speculating that help could soon be on the way. here is a hint. the fed.

plan in the united states today. i don't know what to say. i'm speechless. >> he clearly did know what he was talking about on morning joe there and he worked enough on the issue in massachusetts to know what he was talking about. and that appearance on "morning joe" was at the beginning of this presidential campaign. he knows then that he's going to be running for president. so he's giving a campaign answer then which he can no longer give, apparently. but as the governor just mentioned, one of the things that you can get at the emergency room is a very, very big bill that can put you into bankruptcy, isn't it? >> the emergency room is a great place to get patched up, if you have a true emergency, a heart attack, but it takes only a few hours in the emergency room to run up a bill not just in the thousands of dollars. there are very few people who can pay that. the bills get very expensive, people can't pay it and the cost gets passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher taxes or insurance premiums. nobody knows that well, governor romney who used to make that argument all the t
make him shudder. >> i shudder as a gun owner, seeing his record when he was in the united states senate, what would he do if he never has to face the voters ever again? the next president will appoint a lot of different judges and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our 2nd amendment rights you need a president who respects those rights as well. >> dave: in the president's defense he has not touched gun legislation in any way, shape or form, but of course the fear is, from paul ryan and folks, if you give him four terms-- another term, four years, unchecked without having to face this, maybe he'll touch gun legislation. there's been no indication of that in the last three years of yet. >> alisyn: and he's saying what candidate obama said in 2008 reveals his true thinking about it. >> dave: and that was of course at a private fundraiser with a camera he didn't realize was there. >> alisyn: when will we learn. >> clayton: the 47% comment. that's where that came from. >> alisyn: in other words, phones now have cameras on them? >> shocking, i
of the united states. >> i heightened it up. >> if you listen to what he said in florida from that fund-raiser thing, he continually refers to "those people." "those people." that ain't going to fly. >> yeah. >> "those people." >> that was bad. >> like some alien tribe among us who are just lunging for food stamps. nobody wants to be born poor in the united states of america. >> yeah. >> there's a way to do it, but -- >> i can tell you my dad also, again, unemployed for 18 months. i'll guarantee you he didn't like going to the mississippi unemployment office to get a check to keep gas in the car. >> you think people like going to food pantries? >> no. it was humiliating. he did it because he had to do it. but, again, though, i think, though, there is -- i think this is a line of demarcation. and i think it's a good opportunity. i told a good friend of ours in the romney campaign, i said, the tape's not your problem. the libyan press conference, you lost more independent voters with that stupidity than that tape. you could actually use the tape as a positive. >> let's get to massachusett
think there's a real problem with that guy being president of the united states. just in terms of the persona he presents. he's not really human. your thought? >> well, he's pulled out the reagan playbook. but it's just not working 30 years later the way it did 30 years ago. he wants to add things back in without explaining. he wants 100,000 troops without explaining what they'll do. >> reagan -- give him credit here which i often do. he understood the importance of getting the salute right. to recognize he was commander in chief and he was connecting with the people fighting. >> that's right. but the difference is romney has talking points on a briefing book, but you saw last night the president has really connected with the military people. and in talking about veterans and jobs, the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this international and domestic divide in ways -- >> i think you're right. the idea of the first lady and dr. biden, the second lady if you will, making a point of almost like in a civil war setting. that women taking an interest in mostly guys
, there is instincts, there's tough calls. >> mr. speaker, the president of the united states. >> woodruff: one of the criticisms of mr. obama's leadership is that he's had so much difficulty winning support from congress. many republicans say that's because he was too beholden to his democratic base. tom davis is a former g.o.p. congressman from virginia. >> when he got elected i think he had every intention of trying to bring everybody together behind him, let's work together, but he had a democratic congress. the minute you go over and sit down with the republicans you'll have pelosi and the democrats fighting saying "we won the election." so the pressure is for him to produce a work product and the republicans weren't going to follow over and say "oh, yeah, let's work together." it's tough situation. when your party controls both houses, those interest groups control the agenda. they don't want to give it away to the other side. >> reporter: but the number two democrat, dick durbin, said the president often took on leaders of his own party. he recounted a late night white house meeting on h
birth question, was the president born in the united states. under our constitution he has to be born here to be president. ohio republican primary voters, 37% they do not think barack obama was born here. just 2 in 5 say the president was american born and, therefore, a legitimate president. when you ask the president's religion, this gets scary. a majority of all voters don't take him at his word. just 49%. this is all voters, say he's a christian, which is what he says he is. and 30% of republicans and 34% of conservative republicans say obama is a muslim. simple as that. here is the point. these bad numbers, saying twice wrong, these 34%, twice what they were four years ago. when he came in people took him at face value. i'm american born, obviously. i got a whole history, it was announced when i was born in honolulu, in all the papers there, and i am what i am, a christian. i go to this church that caused him a lot of trouble. do we remember that? he went to a church, jeremiah wright's church that got him in all the trouble. why did we change from that to this -- they're all beco
the unite confirm -- united states confirmed the death of al-qaeda and yemen's number two leader. he and six other people in the car he was traveling in died on monday. al-shahiri spent six years in the military prison at guantanamo bay. >>> the two men running for president will take a rare break from the partisan back and forth today. both president obama and mitt romney agreed to take down their negative ads in honor of the 9/11 anniversary and neither will appear at any overtly political events. president obama will spend the day marking the occasion with events at the white house, the pentagon and walter reed. mr. romney will meet with members of the coast guard during a trip to reno, nevada. >>> closer to home now a congressional candidate from maryland has dropped out of the race after facing allegations of voter fraud. democrat wendy rosen was running for the first district house seat currently held by republican andy harris, but according to the state party rosen cast ballots in two states in the 2006 general election and the 2008 presidential primaries. her name will still be on th
for -- israel, i am one of us recognizes there may have to be some alterations. but for the united states and the democratic party, the incumbent president to unilaterally make a determination that that is no longer the case, that jerusalem is not the capitol is coming to me, such a bad sign to the rest of the world and the arabs that it gave me great discomfort and real pause. >> and it's scary. nuclear bombs so close. you suggest israel may have to stand alone. what is the likelihood that the u.s., let alone the rest of the world steps up? >> don't think it will stand alone, but this was a political mistake, a substantial mistake, and something that i think the democrs wish they had back. lori: i wish i had more time. thank you. up next, bill clinton's speech. we go to the in-box. here to talk about his blockbuster 2016 obama's america blockbuster 2016 obama's america .hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lower cholesterol as part of a heart healthy diet. that's true. ...but you still have to go to the gym. ♪ the one and only, cheerios but proven technologies allow natural gas produc
of cases that have interpreted the constitution of the united states around equal rights and so when we talk about the importance of the presidency it's certainly about the economic issues of that nature. but this could have impacts for hundreds of years. >> i do have to ask this question. there's going to be 28 women paraded on the stage tonight to talk about the power of the republican party. >> we only have 17% of women in congress. we only have 17 women senators, we only have six governors who are women we still have a very long way to go and when the house of representatives is having a hearing about access to birth control and the first panel is devoid of a woman, women women's voices aren't being heard. >> ifill: thank you both, one of those women is on the floor right now, that's congresswoman nidia valasquez of new york. >> i am proud to speak to you as a hispanic american. as a proud latina and a puerto rican.
